This is my first post so please bear with me.
I am doing a chocolate wedding cake this weekend. They want it delivered to them on friday morning but the wedding isnt til saturday.
The problem is that they only want buttercream on it no fondant or sugarpaste. I would normally bake it tonight, decorate tomorrow ready for Friday but wont the cake go stale by saturday if it doesnt have the sugarpaste to seal it?
Any ideas greatly appreciated,
What sort of cake recipe do you use? They vary so much. I know a chocolate mud cake would be fine, but they are typically very moist/dense cakes to start with.
Its really just a chocolate Madeira cake. Is there a recipe for the mud cake?
I don't think you need the sugarpaste to seal it. Any frosting will do that. I frost with just buttercream all the time and it stays fresh for days. If your cake recipe stays fresh with fondant, then it will stay fresh with buttercream as well.
If you think it will be fine then that is great. It has taken me ages to get my choc cake just right and the thought of trying a new recipe now fills me with dread. It is a moist cake and it will have buttercream running through it too. I was just worried it might dry out.
